Arab Men and Women #9: FC Barcelona

You’d be surprised how many Arab males and females out there who have FC Barcelona logos on their cars, facebook pages, clothes, and basically everywhere! I have seen toilet papers with FC Barcelona logos on !

A rough analysis of FC Barcelona fans in the Middle East will tell you this:

  • 80% of FC Barcelona fans started watching football about 2 to 4 yrs ago, and have actually no business in football or sports in general.
  • 10% root for FC Barcelona because it’s a strong team now. Those same 10% used to root for Real Medrid few yrs ago when it was winning. Sore losers.
  • 5% have no idea what FC Barcelona is, they don’t know the difference between a goal and a penalty, and they have no idea why they root for FC Barcelona. They just have the logo on their facebook page, and they update the status of their facebook pages with things like “we won”, “Barca 4ever”, whenever they hear there’s a match.
  • 5% are actual fans.

    I’m barça fan since i was born, i live in valencia, my family is traditionally from barça, but what i see here is true, many people is barça fan just because last years we are beating everything.
    By the way, whoever who understands the morals of this football club (wich is much more than just a football club) will be even more fan.
